WSUS issue.. Not yet reported stauts

Hi All,

I seem to be having ANOTHER issue with WSUS. I was on here recently asking abot getting ghosted machines into the WSUS console. After several failed attempts i was finally able to make them appear by the use of the following script;

net stop wuauserv
reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate" /f
ren c:\windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
wuauclt /resetauthorization /detectnow /runhandlercomserver

Once i ran this script the ghosted machines finally appeared in the WSUS console. The problem now lies in that all the XP machines have appeared but there status is Not yet reported. Im guessing by tempaering with the software distribution folder in thw windows directory that i have somehow broken it.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what i could try?

Below is also from the end of my windowsupdate.log on one of the clients not reporting status. I triggered this by running a wuauclt /detectnow /reauthorization

    Does Windows Update website work? Usually one of the first things to check if you can't get WSUS client to get updates after restarting the service.

    Is there a proxy server in your environment?

    Client firewall?

    Have you tried using the FQDN of your WSUS server in the GPO setting? Instead of http://server:8530 , try http://server.domain.com:8530. This may just be a name resolution problem.

    Another tool that might help you troubleshoot this faster is SpecOps GPupdate. It adds some extensions to ADUC that allow you to right-click and force a GPupdate and Windows Update. It's free and I've been using it for a couple of weeks after reading about it in the 2008 Group Policy Resource kit. You can get more information and download here:

    My favorite WSUS hint is to always run WSUS in a virtual machine so it can be wiped out and re-built easily.

    Might be a DNS thing. I'd try the FQDN and also make sure the firewalls are not interferring.

    Can you post output from the clientdiag tool (downloadable here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/wsus/bb466192.aspx)?
